Want to know more about where that $787 billion dollars in the stimulus package is going? Here are links to a couple of timely articles with all the details about how the stimulus package will encourage renewable energy and energy efficiency.

 • “Will the Stimulus Help Wind and Solar?” from the New York Times blog, Green Inc.
